Legislative Battle Brewing

The Hill reports that a legislative battle is brewing over the FEHB Program appropriations restriction on abortion coverage that was routinely adopted while the Republicans controlled Congress. Of course, the Democrats are in the driver’s now. According to the Hill, President Bush “sent stern letters to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) [in May 2007] promising to veto ‘any legislation that weakens current Federal policies and laws on abortion.’”
